Women in Science

Tuesday, January 24, 2:00 p.m.

Filmmaker Lodge
550 Main St.

Although women have conducted pioneering scientific work for centuries, their stories are too seldom told. Why are there still relatively few female scientists, in the real world and on screen? How are they depicted in film? Join cognitive neuroscientist Heather Berlin (Science Goes to the Movies), systems engineer Tracy Drain (NASA Jet Propulsion Lab), screenwriter Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), filmmaker Jennifer Phang (Advantageous), and moderator Nell Greenfieldboyce (NPR). Supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation

Panels are open to all Festival credential holders on a space-available basis.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
